Hi there guys,
My names is Ed. I'm a full stack developer (react js + .NET core). Very interested in ML and Algorithms and Data structure. Bit of a shy person when it comes to posting new tech blog-posts but hopefully Dev.to will help me change that :)
Welcome to DEV. 🙂
Just a quick tip, you can follow different tags (like #react or #dotnetcore) but also consider browsing the landing pages for different tags (e.g. dev.to/t/react) to dig through all the different posts under that tag.
And as far as being a bit shy about posting, I totally feel you. If you do decide to write something, I can say that the community is generally super friendly. Anywho, hope you dig it here!
Highly appreciated :)
that's helpful thanks
You're very welcome! 😀
Write about things you've used in your development, like how you may love WinForms but you despise WPF or whatever, your passion will be included in your writing. Can't wait to see what you write!
I'm shy about talking and asking about tech, much less posting about it. Everything that interests you are things I'm trying to learn now, so any contributions you ever feel like making will definitely be valued by plenty of folks!
Hi Edward. I have just got started with React. Would love to see your blog-posts about it.
Hello, i know dotnet core, dont know react
nice creds. Welcome to Dev.
My name is Jeril. I've been wanting to learn to code for a few years now, but haven't made a ton of progress. A lot of starting things and not keeping up with them. I think now I finally have the time and motivation to do this. Am starting out with learning front-end web development for now, but I might shift my focus to learning Python in a few months. This seems like a really neat community, and I'm happy to have found this!
Python doesn't even have to be a shift in focus - you could start out writing a backend with Flask to serve up a frontend you wrote!
Oh, that's good to know. Thanks!
Welcome to DEV Jeril! I agree with Ben that Python can be great for web work - so yeah! you can still learn web development by learning python. Good luck!
I guess you could call me a "Mature" programmer, I started back in the day when we still loaded programs with paper tape. Started with Assembler and moved on to Fortran, Cobol, etc.
At 73 I am still actively programming as a freelancer using Visual Basic, C#, SQL Server, and Python.
Need to get my head around Git Hub and all its strange jargon for my current client so will appreciate any pointers as to how best to get into it.
Welcome to DEV. Great to hear this! Hopefully, you'll find what you need among the many DEV posts. Or you could try asking a particular question and I'm sure you'll find support in the community.
wow, that is really great to hear! well, I am positive that you will surely find help here and that you will master very soon Git, as it is really not that complicated, despite the jargon. All the best!
Hi Michael, there are some great tutorials on the internet. For day to day stuff you only really need no more than 5 commands: branch, commit, push, pull, checkout.
Hello everyone. I’m a software entrepreneur. Focusing on SAAS.
Welcome! You'll find a great support in this community!
Really? I’m browsing the site now. Are there other SAAS owners here?
You can make a post about it or look for the tag and found some people that might be working in the same things :)
Hey, did you develop a Saas ?
My name is Franco, I am doing a PhD in environmental sciences. In this position I mostly work on software development building different types of web and native applications to answer environmental questions for resource policy. I mostly work in python and some js but these days I am actively trying to become sufficiently proficient in C# to develop windows applications. I am very happy to have found this community!
Hi Franco. I'm new here but I want to say that Your PhD sounds super interesting. Good luck with it!
Welcome! What does your PhD concern?
Thanks! The overarching topic is circular economy but in details I am developing tools to make macro-economic environmental impact assessment of potential policy scenarios using environmental input-output data, and automating environmental impact assessment of products.
Interesting! ... what is circular economy? (is it basically a technical term for "what goes around, comes around?) :)
In a way, yes, you could say so. It's an industrial economic paradigm that aims at minimizing use of resources and environmental impacts by using different strategies. For example recycling, dematerializing products, substituting products for services, etc...
The fundamental premise is that we can obtain equal or better socio-economic performance, at a fraction of current resource use while also limiting (or even offsetting) our negative impact on the environment.
This sounds like a fascinating field - and particularly salient these days.
thanks! yes it is. Well, at least for me. I feel very fortunate to have the chance to contribute to this field.
Ah; sounds like something we could use right now :) Good luck!
Hey! My name is Al, a student at UT Dallas, and work as a Software Engineering Manager on campus. Have been reading DEV.to for a while and am amazed at all the knowledge being put out on here currently, and hoping to write and contribute myself soon! Really into full stack web dev currently, with React, Node, python, and Go
Hi Al. Welcome to DEV.
Welcome Al! Quite a nice stack you have. Yes, Dev.to is amazing for me as well. Cheers
Hi, DEV.to community.
I'm a new guy on the block. I've found a new passion for coding and hope that here, I'll get the motivation I need to scale. I'm a beginner. I've just completed HTML and now in CSS, then plan to do JS and React. My goal is Frontend.
Welcome! JS and React are great options for Frontend - lots of jobs there. What have you found to be the hardest part so far?
Thanks for checking on me. Well, I just completed HTML after a couple of weeks. Three days ago I began CSS. And I find it going great. I know the hard parts are ahead, and I'll let you know as I progress. It's an exciting experience, though.
Another beginner here. React is great!
My name is Alin and I am interested in js, node, react and python.
I found dev.to by accident and after reading a few articles(which I really enjoyed! thumbs up to the autors) I decided I want to be a part of this great community :)
Welcome! It is indeed a great community - good to have you Alin!
My name is Alex, im a graphics designer, art director, music producer, and everything about you have to use creativity to create, and im about to dive into computer science, when i say dive, is because i will jump in the pool of école 42 here in são paulo, brazil, and i just sure to enter in every community about devs, coders, programmers, to be sure i will survive in this experience.
Have a great day folks ^
Hello Alex! Good luck on your code learning adventure! :)
Thank Chris :D
Hello Alex, welcome and good luck with your new professional study!
Hey there DEVs!
My name is Bien, and I'm an aspiring full stack developer both in Software and Web Development. I'm very much interested when it comes to Data and Statistics. I wanted to learn more language and get inspiration from posts and at the same time learn from them! Wish all the best! - P.S. Still a student!
Greetings Bien! Good luck with your studies, and moving into development!
Hello Raja! What do you like about Rust so far? I've been thinking about learning it too - but right now I have too many things on my list already 🤣
I started reading the book named "The Rust Programming Language" and till now I like concepts like
This is what I mostly admired about Rust so far and still reading...
Not directly Chris. as per my understanding TypeScript is the one actually enabling JS to be a static type one.
sorry, I mean Rust is staticly typed :) Yes, TypeScript is what would make JS static - but not in the same way (it's not actually enforced in the same way, etc)
Hello there, guys) My name is Oleksandr, I`m a game (Unity3D) developer, but also practice .NET (web, mobile, desktop). Highly interested in English learning :D and, of course, programming: C#, .Net, Web
Hello! Welcome to DEV :) I don't know much about Unity3D development - how do you like it?
Hi, Chris! Unity is pretty good for a small projects, but a little bit ugly, when project gets fast grow :)
Ah, good to know! I have tried playing with it before, but it seemed like I had to learn a lot just to get going - At least - coming from a webdev perspective :)
Hey ya'll guys am Schemajr, am here to learn coding as much as I can, am more interested in dotnet, Machine Learning, C# and more, looking forward to a happy journey with you guys.
Welcome Schemajr! What topic in machine learning interests you the most? It such a large field, and there is so much cool stuff going on!
I am more interested in Database and Artificial intelligence, which topic are you currently working on?
I'm really interested in generative methods - so GANs, etc. It's so neat what they can produce! Coming from a webdev background though, it gets confusing at times :) It's a new experience to have to follow both the math and the programming.
How can we be in touch via cyberspace and you lol teach me, I mean collaboratively working together towards projects
You can find me on twitter (dms open): twitter.com/chrisachard or on my website (email is there): chrisachard.com/ Happy to help if I can!
Good will discuss a way forward then, just one more question now that you do websites, do you also know dotnet or C# simply put which programming language do you know?
On the backend I use Ruby on Rails or Node (with express), or lately I've just been building static sites with Gatsby. On the front end I use React for almost everything :)
Yoh lol that's a lot man, now how you going to teach me? The thing is I want to be a hybrid both IT Pro and tap in the DevOps space
Ah, not sure I'd be as much help there :) I'm writing about everything I know on my blog - so I'd start there :) But I can't say I'm good at DevOps - so I would look on DEV for articles about that first. Good luck!
Don't worry I'll see what I can do to learn more about DevOps if only I could learn how to develop a website I'll take it from there
hey there Devs,
my name is Kangwa. I am an intermediate developer(Flutter, Neo4j). What brought me here is my experiencing extreme difficulty in parsing graphql responses in Flutter from my Neo4j-graphql backend.. I was hoping someone could help out since the example concerning parsing Flutter graphql responses on this site works.
I posted the problem on Stackoverflow at the following link:
Welcome to DEV Kangwa!
Sorry, I can't help with your question :/ - but I've been very curious about Flutter! How has it been using it? Would you recommend it for business applications?
Its been great I was worried about performance but its same as native when I loaded the App on my iPhone X. It's really fun to develop with it and does reduce development costs a whole lot alongside time. It's a genius tool from Google in my opinion
Neat - sounds like I need to check it out some more then!
